UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Can. Pours a deep, deep amber that looks almost black in the right light. Head is off-white and pours nicely, thins out quickly. Can definitely taste caramel and a nice touch of hops. It hides the alcohol well, but packs a bit of a punch. Good beer.

Appearance: this beer is gorgeous when it’s poured, the bottom is a dark but semi transparent brown, the middle is black, pours with a medium light tan or dark beige creamy head, Aroma: dark toasted malt grain, kind of faint Taste: smokey, has a dark malt grain to it that reminds you of coffee but is completely different than a stout or porter, light to moderate sweetness, minimal to non existent bitterness Palate: very thick mouthfeel, creamy, minimal aftertaste, soft carbonation, extremely frothy Overall: incredible, the mouthfeel of nitro is amazing to me, the beer is all malt yet not very sweet, highly drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved this one, dark, special aromas linger. Malt forward, bitterness with hints of sweetness. The abv is well masked.

Nitro tap. Mild sweetness and woody flavor finishes with prune flavors bit bad. Not amazing

Bottle pour. Very dark reddish brown with a large creamy tan head. Very nice lacing. Aroma is very malty with caramel, toffee, and some chocolate. Full creamy body. Nice sweet taste with a little salt and very little bitter. Very good beer.

Just an incredibly impressive beer. It’s distinct from other scotch ales I’ve had in the past. Great appearance and the taste and aftertaste are exactly what I was looking for in this type of beer. Full-bodied without being interfering as one other reviewer noted.

Good, good, good, good, good, good, good, yadayadauadayadaydada. It’s a solid scotch ale, with slightly less flavor due to the nitro widget.

Tasted from a Nitro can.
Beautiful creamy white frothy head (almost egg white color).
Nose - malty red fruits
Taste - light to medium viscosity with floral bright red fruits but it doesn't envelop the mouth. It finishes light and clean with the malt and fruits lightly whipping in and out. To me this would be a great beer to accompany any food entree. It's just big enough to be enjoyable, but not big enough to interfere with anything.

Big nitro can to English pint glass. Pours deep red/brown, big billowy khaki head, nice lacing and great retention. Aroma of smoked malt. Taste is malty sweet, lightly bitter. Medium/full bodied, ample nitro carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes bitter sweet. Tasting notes of smoked malt, tree nuts, caramel, a little chocolate and cola nuts. A very tasty Scotch ale!
